Pannerone from Lodi
Pannerone is a typical Lodi cheese that is characterized by the total absence of salt and by the use of only whole cow's milk in its production.
Its taste is sweet and lovable at first taste, but hides an almost bitter aftertaste, similar to the flavor of almond.
This is a rare and niche cheese perfect for refined combinations, such as jam and honey, which balance its important aftertaste.
Particularly daring is the combination with our Cremonese mustards.
